Importing Veeam Backup Server Settings

If you want to manage Veeam Agent for Mac with Veeam Backup & Replication, in Veeam Backup & Replication you can add your Mac computer to a protection group for pre-installed Veeam Agents. In this case, after you install Veeam Agent, you must import the configuration file generated by Veeam Backup & Replication. The configuration file is one of the Veeam Agent for Mac setup files that you must obtain from your system administrator. To learn more, see the Deploying Veeam Agents Using Generated Setup Files section in the Veeam Agent Management Guide.

To import the Veeam Agent for Mac configuration file:

  1. Get the configuration file from your system administrator and upload this file to the Veeam Agent computer.
  2. Navigate to the directory where you have saved the configuration file and run the following command:

veeamconfig mode setVBRsettings --cfg <file_name>.xml

where <file_name> is a configuration file name.

Alternatively, you can specify the full path to the configuration file without navigating to the directory where you have saved this file — for example:

user@wrk001:~% veeamconfig mode setVBRsettings --cfg /Users/user/Mac\ Workstations\ Distribs/Mac/Mac\ Workstations.xml

Mind that the connection between Veeam backup server and Veeam Agent computer is not persistent. Veeam Agent synchronizes with Veeam Backup & Replication every 6 hours. To synchronize Veeam Agent immediately, run the following command from the Veeam Agent computer:

veeamconfig mode syncnow
